Doctoral Training in Web Science

Our EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Web Science provides a four-year programme in exciting new research areas, combining a first year of MSc study, followed by three years of PhD Research.

Bringing together world-leading research and postgraduate education, the DTC is an interdisciplinary centre with an ambitious agenda to explore the social and organisational behaviour of the Web as well as the underpinning technology.

Why study web science?

Directors from the University's Web Science Institute give an introduction to this exciting new field, discussing the ways the Web is impacting on society and the ways that society is changing the Web

I think student’s concerns about employability are more acute than ever. Increasingly, employers are expecting the whole package; the ability to write fluidly and think critically with the technical, analytical skills offered by for example computer science. Web Science is unique in that it provides both. It’s no exaggeration to say Southampton University is leading the world in this field.
